Prepared Skin Is Happy Skin

As the seasons change, we notice changes in our skin as well. During the colder months and as we transition from Summer to Fall, not only is it getting colder outside, our skin is changing as well. Colder temperatures can cause the skin to become more dry, irritated, and chapped. As the temperature drops, we must start new routines.

Please don't panic; it's not an entirely new routine. Since our skin is becoming drier, we must moisturize as needed. In addition, it's also a great idea to add a face moisturizer with SPF. Our favorite, of course, is the Lift Anti-Gravity Moisturizer. If you're stepping outside into the sun, even if it's overcast out, the Defend Hydrating Facial Sunscreen is a perfect choice. It's a great anti-aging moisturizer with SPF to keep your skin protected. The area around our eyes tends to get drier as well, so applying eye cream should be on your list of to-dos during these drier months.

As we all know, water is essential to keeping our bodies hydrated, but it's also key in hydrating our skin. Therefore, keeping your Profile Yeti nearby is always recommended since a hydrated body means better prepared, hydrated skin.

Keep your lips hydrated as well to prevent chapping and cracking. Waiting until your skin is irritated or when you feel the tightness or see the redness in your lips is when it's already too late to be prepared. Start beforehand and keep chapstick in your pocket. Nobody enjoys cracked winter lips, which can be painful and uncomfortable if you've experienced that before. Using and keeping a moisturizing/hydrating lip balm or chapstick on hand is essential and a must-have during this transition.

Remember, stay ahead of the change and moisturize your skin as needed, likely one more application that you're used to. Next, stay hydrated and drink up with water to keep the body hydrated, and lastly, keep some chapstick within reach.

Being prepared will ensure the changing seasons don't catch up to your skin, and you can keep the summer glow all year round. As we say, prepared skin is happy skin.
